H/F Episode: NMC In Conversation with Nick Bontrager

This month we’re joined by a very special guest: Nick Bontrager, new President of the New Media Caucus. In this episode Nick shares his approach as an interdisciplinary artist and plans for the New Media Caucus.

Nick Bontrager is an interdisciplinary artist whose work and research explores the physical and conceptual nature of the moving image, game-based interactions and exchanges, and the idea of replicas or facsimiles as tools of preservation or understanding.

Nick received his MFA from The Ohio State University for studies in Art & Technology and his BFA at the University of Houston in Photography & Digital Media. His artwork has been exhibited internationally in film festivals, museums, and galleries with a recent focus on interactive electronics workshops for underrepresented and under-served groups.

Nick is currently an Associate Professor of New Media Art at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas
